USS Arizona spewing smoke

Photo of USS Arizona spewing smoke

Vertical aerial view of "Battleship Row", beside Ford Island, soon after USS Arizona was hit by bombs and her forward magazines exploded. Photographed from a Japanese aircraft.

Ships seen are (from left to right): USS Nevada; USS Arizona (burning intensely) with USS Vestal moored outboard; USS Tennessee with USS West Virginia moored outboard; and USS Maryland with USS Oklahoma capsized alongside.

Smoke from bomb hits on Vestal and West Virginia is also visible.

Japanese inscription in lower left states that the photograph has been reproduced under Navy Ministry authorization.
